Brompton Bikes

     These keen cyclists were in Ripon Market Square earlier today.  The couple, from Yeadon (about five miles North of Bradford) enjoy riding along the country lanes around Ripon and Fountains Abbey but no longer wish to cycle very high mileages.  The bicycles are made by Brompton and fold up into a package small enough to be taken onto a bus or train or fitted into a car boot.  I have an older version of one of these bikes myself and find them quite enjoyable to ride but not really a substitute for a full sized machine.

  1. I think these are the top end of folding bikes, I believe they even do an electric folding version!
